I will visit them frequently over the winter in an attempt to diminish said stash. Here’s my top ten (thus far): Read the rest of this entry »
In keeping with my quickie project theme, I whipped up a couple of these for the felines in our home. I thought it would be a good way to tackle a little bit of my ridiculous scrap collection, and it would only take a few short minutes and give the cats something new to play with.
His name is Percy and we rescued him from the “mean” streets of our neighborhood. He’s almost identical to cat #1 Zeph, and blends in well with the family. Top off the animals with Marls, and we’ve got the three stooges. Percy does have a habit of wandering off for a few days at a time and then coming home ravenous, so he’s somewhat like a wayward teenager in that respect.
The cats loved the toys (naturally, they’re filled with catnip), and I was satisfied in finishing a project in under 30 minutes. However, this led me to the realization that:
A) I really need to organize my scraps.
B) I have WAY too many scraps.
C) I need to complete more projects with my scraps!
